Yes, race is controlled by genetics.

If you look at a troop of baboons would you be able to distinguish races within the troop? Of course not... Now there is more genetic variability within a troop of baboons than the entire human population.
Furthermore, humans all throughout the world have dark hair, tanned skin, and usually brown eyes. The only exception is northern Europe. It seems 8,000 years ago two genes mutated to account for "whiteness" in humans.
When people try to group people into races there is always controversy over what constitutes a "race". Are American Indians a race? What race do people from India fit in? Where do you place Arabs? Why should people from Mongolia, Tibet, and Indonesia all be placed in the same race? So sociologists, and cultural anthropologists, regard race as a social construct without any scientific basis.

races of cows, pigs, sheep, ducks, geese, rabbits, chicken, dogs...yes
races of humans... not really. Skincolour and "skullshape" say nothing about your talents, allergies or preferences
